# Solana API WebSocket subscriptions

The Solana API subscriptions allow subscribing to specific events in the blockchain.

Check the Solana docs (opens new window) for more methods and information.

The Solana API subscriptions require the use of a WebSocket endpoint.

Information

  • Multiple subscriptions may be active at once.
  • Many subscriptions take the optional commitment parameter, defining how finalized a change should be to trigger a notification. If commitment is unspecified, the default value is finalized for subscriptions.
